Crash with entrapment in Hampshire, 11-2-18

From the Hampshire FPD:

We responded to a vehicle accident vs tree with heavy damage on Harmony north of Kelley Road earlier this afternoon (11/2/18). One patient was extricated and transported to an Elgin hospital with serious injuries. We received mutual aid from Burlington and Pingree Grove Fire Protection Districts as we had multiple calls in progress.
